I didn't write this script and don't know perl, so I don;t know what is
wrong...

#!/usr/bin/perl
read(STDIN,$temp,$ENV{'CONTENT_LENGTH'});
@pairs=split(/&/,$temp);
foreach $item(@pairs)
 {
  ($key,$content)=split(/=/,$item,2);
  $content=~tr/+/ /;
  $content=~s/%(..)/pack("c",hex($1))/ge;
  $fields{$key}=$content;
 }                                       
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; 
print "<HTML>\n";
print "<BODY BGCOLOR=#FFFFFF>\n";
print "<CENTER>\n";
print "THANK YOU<BR>\n";
print "$fields{fname} $fields{lname}</BR>";
print "I will write<BR>\n";
print "you at<BR>\n";
print "$fields{email}<BR>\n";
print "</CENTER>\n";
print "</BODY></HTML>";

I was just looking at the cgi.log file, which didn't give any errors.. in
the error.log I get "[error] Premature end of script headers" messages..
what does this mean?

Thanks
